Why. Posting here won´t change anything.

Currently i am not aware of that. I must have  missed such discussions on this list. 
But i am sure there were such discussions otherwise you wouldn´t write it.

When a bug is confirmed in the bugbase, no one can whitewash it. When it´s confirmed then it´s confirmed.

Posting here about a real problem/bug makes sense, because others might jump in and confirm the same experience or might help to solve the problem
As always, a good recipe, if possible, makes it even easier to reproduce it.
I very often try to reproduce problems reported here in the list to find out if it´s a general problem/bug in LC or just a problem that occurs only at the system of the reporter.

But just moaning here in the list  about deficiencies does not make sense to me. What should that do? 
No one can help.

Because people want always something new. It must be always the newest. 
Because of that the lifecycles of products and software are getting shorter and shorter and therefore there is less time for
development and testing.
